Garden Bloggers Bloom Day
December 15, 2014
I got nothin’.
The only blooms in my house, indoors or out, are store-bought. Still, I have some interesting things to share. This Amaryllis, with 8 big blooms, required no soil, no water. Called a Waxt Bulb, there is not a lot of info on the web. But this is a great gift idea.
It’s just about foolproof. You don’t water it or feed it. You just watch it and enjoy. That makes it the perfect gift plant. Aunt Ellie can’t under or over water it. The cat can’t knock over a pot of soggy dirt or rocks.
Most of my Amaryllis are scheduled to bloom after the holidays, when I can really use the color.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a poinsettia.
What is currently blooming at your house?
Elizabeth Lawrence, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year,” inspired Carol of May Dreams Gardens to start Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month, garden bloggers from all over the world publish what is currently blooming in their gardens, and leave a link in Mr. Linky and the comments of May Dreams Gardens.
